The cover is the superior version, right? Even without its automatic connection to FBDO—it's pretty much impossible to see Seurat's Sunday Afternoon without hearing the song now—it's just so a rich and romantic interpretation.
Bothe versions are cool. But I still prefer the shorter Smiths version the mandolin or whatever it is at the end gets me.

It's competent, certainly, but the predictability kinda ruins things for me. It could be the same band for all but the one song.
I dunno, I think a bunch of the bands bring their own distinctive style. But I'm pretty big fan of a bunch of those bands to begin with so I might be more sensitive to what outsiders-looking-in might view as fairly minor differences in style.
Fair. I'm not a hardcore fan by any stretch (other than intellectually; intellectually it's the most fascinating subset of punk) so I've not the best ears to see distinction.

I guess I'm left alone to tell the kids about the Dream Academy. They must learn so that they know and can triumph over future challenges. [insert bold, upturned jaw here]

If it's any consolation their song "Life in a Northern Town" is an old favourite of mine.

Admission: Those are the only two songs of theirs I know. But "Life" is immense.

I actually liked the early Smiths stuff with Johnny Marr, but I've never been able to get excited about Morrissey's solo stuff.

I like plenty of Morrissey solo tracks. But he's just a turd.

I always feel bad for the other members of his group who don't share his views but it's been their pay day for so long.
